The readings let you look ahead at what texts we'll hear in worship.
Reading them before worship can help you experience the Word in an even deeper way. You can even mark your Bible and bring it along!

(We follow the Revised Common Lectionary at New Life, the cycle of readings that takes us through our Gospels year by year and is shared by the larger church all over the world. Some days we mark special celebrations, or there are some choices or variations, so details will show up here on this page.)
